Hobby Update: Craftworlds Everywhere

I recently got a shot in the arm and some fire under my ass to actually FINISH an army. I have been playing armies not completely assembled forever. Models being held together by some Blue Tac because I need to paint “this” section before I can paint “that” section and then wash “this” and highlight “that” then matte varnish “this” and gloss varnish “that” before I can base and go through final assembly. Needless to say, playing like that for […]

Iron Within

While watching the disappointing performance of the Pittsburgh Steelers last night, I took some couch time to knock out some work on one of three Iron Warriors Rhinos. I decided to stipple the vehicle with 3 different shades of silver. The whole purpose was to give the tank a textured, gritty feel. Black was used for most access points, and the gold was used on just the front door. There will be no other embellishments on my tanks. No skull […]

On the list is “completing my drone bases and sniper drone teams,” “completing 12 Stealth suits,” and “basecoating 2 Hammerheads and a Sky Ray.” That’s for this week. I have done more on this Hammerhead […]

Tau Crisis Suit XV-8 Conversion

I HATE the GW Crisis Suit models. I HATE the GW Crisis Suit models. I HATE the GW Crisis Suit models. Did I mention I HATE the GW Crisis Suit models? I love the Fire Warriors. I think they are the best looking troop model in all of 40K (except for the female Dark Eldar Warriors). I REALLY like most of the other Tau Empire models. I am not a fan of the Kroot race, but — hey — call […]
